obama. he had to produce a photoid to vote. help me to understand recognizable person in the entire united states of america has to show his photoid why is it too much to ask that for the rest of that. most of them gave up the licenses and passport. if chicago requires voters id. those who say we ain't got voters fraud going on around here, they must have missed the powerful and disturbing reports filed by eric shawn who exposed voters fraud in multiple states. eric reportod hudson hallum a sitting democrat who pled guilty vodka voting scheme ited his father and city council and even a police officer. the u.s. attorney appointed by barak obama and eric holder got the guilty pleas and the resignation. it is just people don't usually get caught. in virginia this we're. patrick moran was forced to resign from his father's campaign after an undercover video showing young moran aiding and abetting fraud and get ballots and using forged documentings. i joked that you ought fovote early and often. but i never meant for people to take that literally. a fraud vote is stealing a vote from the
of them can't finted - find jobs these days. obama got 60 percent of the vote there. that was a growing african-american community there as well. and so obama has target to get out and vote. african-american voters and singleles and crowd. and they would like to get the same turn out. romney has to go in the old neighborhood in the outer suburbs was columbus and by the way, that is where a number of romny and ryan campaigns. >> we are not ready for the yet. but who do you see winning the election? >> i see romney winning the election. i see him generally ahead in the polls and i see him, i see president obama at fren percent. that is not because people don't know him. you have 53 percent last time. 100 percent of the people know him and observed him closely for four years and you can't help but observe the president closely and only 47 percent are voting for him f. the election were held would he have the 270 vote majority nailed i think so but not sure. we have seen the situation where winninglet popular vote didn't win the electorial vote. but he's clearly within reach of 270 electora
not to vote for barack obama again, who voted for him in 2008 and aren't happy with the way things are going. once somebody else to vote for and now that mitt romney is both acceptable because of his debate performances, and it looks like he might actually win, it's easier to jump ship to him. that's the kind of group of people you'll have to watch in some of these tightly fought states. chris: david, your thoughts on this cy war going on in both directions clearly. >> i think obama may be making a mistake in this posture of sitting on a lead. there's a way in which the president has been too defensive, too reticent in his demeanor through the campaign. and if you pull the camera back and look at the last couple of months, there's no question whatever the momentum factor is in these last few days, no question that over that broader period, there has been momentum toward romney. and people he was not really close challenger, he is now. and i think that factor is there. and you can just see it. you can see it in his body language. chris: i can see what obama is trying to do. he's trying to rem

is. what i want to do is make sure that everybody who agrees with us votes. >> key part of the obama campaign strategy is early voting which could be effected in coastal battlegrounds. today, the virginia state board of elections urged localities to keep moving forward with in-person absentee voting unless the storm makes it unsafe. >> i am not worried at this point about the impact on the election. worry about the impact on families and the impact on our first responders. i'm worried about the impact on the economy. >> it could delay friday's release of new jobs report just four days before the election. >> labor department official later said it's our intention that friday will be busy as usual. regarding the october employment report. notice wiggle room with the "intention." unclear if they will open in a few days or all week closed. unclear. but any delay in jobs report close to the election would cause an uproar. >> ed henry live at the white house. thank you. romney campaign is like much of the east. hunkering down politically tonight. riding out the storm. two political corres

strategist and cathy republican strat yist and author of 52 reasons not to vote for obama. christie, starting with you, it is obvious that early voting favors democrats in a big way and today the governor cancelled early voting and don't be surprised if it happens again tomorrow. >> it is not helpful to our side. but the ramification. storm impact will not only be felt today or this week but through election day as well we don't know all of the chaos that will ensue. it will affect both people who can't get to the polls polling places and voters that don't have power. we don't know who is really going to be hurt by it. >> steve: no matter means no tv ads and for poem who vote both campaigns are trying to get their message out in the week or so. no one will so that? >> in theory that hurts president obama's opportunities but where he has an opportunity to look presidential and there is it a natural disaster. and difficult for romny to grab air time. newspaper and radios and they will get some levels of publicication but it is an tount for the president>> steve: we saw the president at fema yes
clinton or barack obama. they may have voted for then candidate obama in the final election, and you need to convince them to vote for paul ryan and me. >> there's a real good feeling throughout this thing. these old buckeyes kind of see it clear. no, i really mean it. they can cut through a lot of this stuff. >> let's bring in john feary and david goodfriend. good to see you, gentlemen. good morning. david, let me ask you about mitt romney as appeal to hillary clinton veeters. could he pick off moderate democrats? >> no. in order to be a hillary clinton voter you see the world a lot differently than mitt romney says he does. i think the divisiveness the romney campaign has shown economically and frankly when it comes to women's issues, it's going to drive people back into the obama camp. it's an interesting thing, because he may very well have had a shot at some of the moderate democratic voters in ohio, but i think his campaign has stumbled in that it never shown itself to be an open, big tent for moderates. it's still very conservative, severely conservative as mitt romney might say, a
is better for you. it's an honor to be your president... and i'm asking for your vote... so together, we can keep moving america forward. i'm barack obama and i approve this message. athat's what the plan georged allen supports... would cost our economy. newspapers called it "economically destructive." like allen's votes to give tax breaks to companies... that ship jobs overseas, his economic plan would... help big corporations, devastating the middle class. allen even voted against tax breaks for small businesses. virginia can't afford to go back to george allen. the democratic senatorial campaign committee... is responsible for the content of this advertising. look, the reason i'm in this race is there are people that are really hurting today in this country. and we face this deficit -- could crush the future generations. and republicans and democrats both love america but we need to have leadership -- leadership in washington that will actually bring people together and get the job done and could not care less if it's a republican or a democrat. i've done it before, i'll do it again. i'm
of the state. we will see what kind of "margin call, obama has here. host: voting systems in your state, how do you vote? guest: i voted two weeks ago. we have early voting and starts three weeks before the election. you can vote early. about one-third of the total votes cast will be cast before election day. a lot of the stuff that's happening right now in terms of trying to influence voters is wasted, because a lot of people have already voted. you can vote in your present before the election and then we have -- we vote in precincts across the state in every corner of the state by machine. host: if there were any issues and a recount was necessary, how does that work in iowa? guest: we do have a procedure for a recount. if an election is within 2 percentage points, it's an automatic recount. you can petition for a recount if it if it is a little larger than that. so there's a possibility of a recount. we have never had that and it's never decided an election, but there are procedures in place to have a recount. we anticipate this election will be close enough for that could be an issue. host:

of the storm will have passed enough for people not to be impeded in terms of their ability to vote. i hope that's the case in other parts of the country. we hope this won't impede people to go out and vote. >> thank you very much. both mitt romney and barack obama have suspended their schedules just days before the voters make their choice. for more on the storm's impact on this race, i'm joined by the bbc north america editor in florida where president obama was supposed to be campaigning today and bridgette in cleveland, ohio, the state where governor romney was supposed to be stomping today. let's start with you in florida. i'm incredibly jealous. pouring with rain here in washington, d.c. it must feel a world away, both weather-wise and politically. >> yes, it does. we woke up here this morning thinking the president wag going to launch his campaign. we knew this was going to be a big moment with bill clinton rolling out the big guns, if you like, and that was all canceled rather suddenly just as we woke up. so it was really strange knowing he was flying back to cope with a crisis whil
, but i'm more concerned about the debt our children will be left with. i voted for president obama last time, but we just can't afford four more years. [ romney ] i'm mitt romney and i approve this message. what mitt romney's tv ads say about women? [ romney ] i'm mitt romney or what mitt romney himself says? mitt romney: do i believe the supreme court... should overturn roe v. wade? yes. and it would be my preference that they, that they... reverse roe v. wade. hopefully reverse v roe v. wad. overturn roe v. wade. planned parenthood, we're going to get rid of that. i'll cut off funding to planned parenthood. anncr: no matter what mitt romney's ads say. we know what he'll do. president obama: i'm barack obama and... i approve this message. take a look at what is happening in virginia beach. is getting battered by that serve. the waves are coming into the to 20 feetre close are higher than that. we wanted to show you some of the video that has just come in. >> we have been seeing amazing from across the east coast. we're just getting word that the romney-ryan campaign has their schedule
this is a lumbering and slow-moving storm? >> right. i think the obama campaign feels good about their early vote operations across the country, but it's hard to say. to hogan's point, one of the things that may happen here and both campaigns have to deal with it, it disrupts voter contact. so the folks that go door to door, the folks making phone calls, that might be harder if lines go down. the other thing is polling. when these campaigns are looking at decisions over the next week, where to spend their resources, in a state like virginia or new hampshire or ohio, it may be hard to poll folks during the course of this week. in a sense you're operating in the dark. but i think overall the obama campaign feels good about where they are from an early vote standpoint. >> aaccoccording to politico th president has retain the lead. on the flipside we saw a slate of mixed state polls that took place over the weekend. 49/49, complete tie right there. the virginia "washington post" poll has obama hanging onto the four-point lead and philadelphia enquirer, 49/42. two different polls here. minnesota is tr
, bush carried it in '04. by 22,000 votes. obama carried it by 30,000 votes there. it's why mitt romney spent a lot of time in cincinnati this week. >> as hamilton county goes, perhaps so ohio goes. let's turn to governor of ohio, john kasich. always great to have you on the program. >> good to listen to the big debate on "meet the press" this morning, wow. >> it's nice to start with a little bit of a chuckle here before we get into the serious issues. this was the cleveland "plain dealer" on thursday, jeff darcy here's his cartoon. i thought was so telling. it's the martian landing saying, take me to your leaders. and the guy says, they're somewhere in ohio. take i-75 north. as you know, everybody is in ohio. i want to ask you the direct question, governor, you've got 7% unemployment. it's better than the national average. who deserves credit for that? is it the president? is it you as the republican governor? or neither one of you? >> you know, david, it's probably the job creators, we're up 112,000 jobs, the last four years, we were down 4,000 jobs. how did we get there? we've made o
to vote, and then she said i don't care who you vote for, as long as it's for obama. >> bill: the romney campaign has shifted to ohio. lots of changes due to the storm. james hullman from political is on the trail joining us this morning on our news line from mansfield, ohio hey, james good to talk to you again. >> good to talk to you and peter. >> bill: i guess your schedule changes by the mitt huh? how are they doing it? just hour before hour or what in >> it's really difficult because you can't just fly somewhere and get to an event. >> bill: yeah right. >> the ramny campaign last night cancelled a new hampshire rally that was scheduled for tomorrow. and the press corps already booked our hotel rooms, so that's one of the reasons it becomes distressful. senior romney officials their big concern is they feel like they have had gains in new hampshire and polls showed that polls were starting to move their way. and now they won be able to campaign there more this week. and they are forced to campaign more where they don't get as biggest bang for their buck. and they thi
to early voting right there. there's this lag obama is doing pretty well in the swing states, but in the national horse race he's as best tied with romney and at worst he's down a point. it raises the possibility of that split verdict. you lose the popular vote and win the electoral college. the reason for that as i outlined last week is he is lagging particularly in the blue states, in the northeast, in the states that are being hit by this. it's not he's going to lose these states. he's not going to lose, connecticut, new jersey, massachusetts, but his falloff is pronounced with democrats in those states. if early voting is sus ppended maryland, it's the mobilization the obama campaign is relying on. if that's going to be difficult to do in these blue states, it could potentially worsen that blue state problem. the one for romney that jumps out at me, he's behind in these swing states. so the question is he needs something over the last week that's going to make him jump two points or three points in ohio or wisconsin or iowa, one of those states. i'm wondering, he had to s
a question. i am a proud democrats so i am pro-barack obama. and a lot of his early voting on the democrat side, there are a lot of voters that normally would not vote on election day. is that why he is getting a big push in ohio and other states? they might have made an effort to locate first-time voters and voters that normally would not vote on election day. is this not true? i want to make a comment after you are done. guest: so far, where we have party registration, there are a good number of democrats who have voted already. the polls are showing that obama is leading the early boat much like he did in 2008. that is an aberration from our part -- previous count. from previous elections before the 2008, typically, republicans won the early voting. we have had such a high volume now and the obama campaign is encouraging their supporters to vote early. we have seen a change in behavior when campaigns can take advantage of early voting to encourage their supporters and mobilize them over a longer period of time. that is was going on on the democrat side. if you look at the numbers, there
of the american people don't know how to vote. you got barack obama for the mess the country was in and all of a sudden the country forgot what he done. now what they're doing, the republicans [inaudible] you wait until romney get in there. see how you like that. host: roger we have a comment coming in on twitter that says -- what do you think about that? caller: well i was born in the caribbean and when i was a kid i used to wait for -- host: there was some talk yesterday looking at how the storm could impact the campaign. here is what was said on cnn let's take a listen. >> in terms of how it affect it is election, i don't think anybody knows. we want access to the polls because we believe that the more people come out, the better we're going to do. and so to the extent that it makes it harder, you know, that's a source of concern. but i don't know how all the politics will sort out. it depends on how different areas are impacted and so the best thing we can do is focus on how we can help people during this storm and hope that it all cleers out by the next weekend will be free of it and p
am pro-barack obama. and a lot of his early voting on the democrat side, there are a lot of voters that normally would not vote on election day. is that why he is getting a big push in ohio and other states? they might have made an effort to locate first-time voters and voters that normally would not vote on election day. is this not true? i want to make a comment after you are done. guest: so far, where we have party registration, there are a good number of democrats who have voted already. the polls are showing that obama is leading the early boat much like he did in 2008. that is an aberration from our part -- previous count. from previous elections before the 2008, typically, republicans won the early voting. we have had such a high volume now and the obama campaign is encouraging their supporters to vote early. we have seen a change in behavior when campaigns can take advantage of early voting to encourage their supporters and mobilize them over a longer period of time. that is was going on on the democrat side. if you look at the numbers, there are more republicans voting ear
that we are comparing a sexual experience to voting for barack obama. i think the analogy is apropos because another four years of barack obama will be painful. gerri: we have a gallup tracking poll with from the leading obama 51-46%. and yet in the desperation that we are talking about, you alluded to it, but we did not say it. the comment from the president about romney calling him of the answer. now he used the word. the president used the word. >> the president of the united states. gerri: what does that tell you? >> what is interesting about all of these, what they're showing is that the debates, a lot of independents like to present less having seen him in the three debates whereas a lot of independents like mitt romney much more. the washington post-abc poll, 47-10 for romney liking him more rather than less. for obama it was 17-26 liking him less rather than more. so the debates did not serve the president well, and he continues down this path. it's kind of inexplicable. gerri: i want to play some sound from all right who i think some of the problem. voters pased. >> college
for president obama. >> i will vote for him again. i think four years is not long enough time to make a complete difference but i think we're on the right path. bill: beverly roe has seen enough. >> i never been involved in the presidential elections and always voted but this one really scares me. bill: why? >> just what i've seen over the last four years. my lifestyle has changed. it's scary. bill: and how seriously do people in ohio take their civic responsibility? every person in that restaurant said they have either voted already or they will so come next tuesday, which is interesting to note, we were in franklin county about a month ago, columbus, ohio, we saw primarily obama ads on tv all the time. here in cincinnati it is the reverse. it is mostly romney ads. the tv ads that they run are taken from the debates, either debate number one or debate number three to make his final argument here, closing argument in ohio. as ohio goes so goes the nation. you will hear that time and again. it is a dead-heat as we stand here today in this critical swing state. both sides claim they have the edge.
just want to go up to people that are thinking of voting for romney and going what if obama said i have a plan to fix the economy but i'm not going to tell you any of the details. >> stephanie: right. >> would you think we were crazy for voting for him at that point? >> stephanie: go ahead. >> i was going to say the story that's getting literally swept away in this storm is this ad that the romney campaign just put out. >> complete lies. >> about jobs going to china. just to the point where chrysler is saying no! we're not doing -- you're actually slandering us here. >> stephanie: that's what i mean. is the maybe stream media going -- is the mainstream media -- blatant lies like that. chrysler had to say no. that's so blatant. he's in ohio and he says -- let's see. a news story about chrysler's plans to open a plant in china. he said the company's thinking of moving all production to china. he'll prevent such action by fighting for every job in america. that's not what the story said. in fact, it says they're
for something different. >> i'm going to vote for romney. i'm going to get rid of obama. he's been there four years and did not do what he said he would do. this is not change. this is the same old thing. >> dean thinks president obama has led the country down the wrong path. he is not alone. louisiana has voted republican for decades. aaron is an environmental activist. louisiana is home to almost half of the nation's wetlands, but they are being destroyed by canals built to serve as oil and gas wells. >> not enough people care. not enough people are demanding action from politicians. not enough people are demanding changes to where we get our energy from. that's one of our largest challenges. >> since 2005, over 340 square miles of wetlands around new orleans have vanished. experts believe this played a major role in the devastation of hurricane katrina. they warn of more disasters ahead due to climate change, but that was not a subject during the presidential debates. >> the no one talked about climate change. we had three debates and not a single mention of climate change. the first time
plausible possibilities. right now president obama can safely count on 201 electoral votes. that isunchanged from yestday. romney can safely count on 191. that is changed. that has changed because north carolina, and let me bring this up today here. north carolina was moved to the tossup category just yesterday. that accounts for the 15 votes that moved away. so where he had at 206, 206 to 201, now 191. and let's turn no to of romney who needs to win north carolina. he is still up in the olls by a gnificant mrgin, but four points yesterday it was more than five. we have that. romney would need also to win, just as before, the state of florida, 29 votes. let's get that. and he is up two points in florida. he also needs virginia where he is up by one point. let's go there. he is building 248. colorado, where both candidates are tied up right now 48-48. we will give that to governor romney as well. we will move that into his column, 257. president obama right now is up by two in iowa, what the purpose of this scenario we will assumed that governor romney wins. i'm sure you won't argue. he also
